Stampin'Up Vintage Leaves Thankful Card and Bookmark

Welcome to my Blog!
Today I would like to share with you a Thankful Card and Bookmark made with the Stampin'Up Vintage Leaves stamp set.
This stamp set is a great investment for your stamp collection, there are so many ways you can use these stamp images, and they always look so attractive on any project.
I wanted to create a very simple way to showcase some of the leaves, and I really love the contrasting colors used here.

The card is 5-1/2 X 4-1/4 and you will need the following:
- For the card base cut a piece of Elegant Eggplant card stock 8-1/2 X 5-1/2 and score at 4-1/4 and fold.
-Cut a piece of Elegant Eggplant card stock 4-1/8 X 5-3/8 for a second layer and emboss this piece, I used the Elegant Dots embossing folder.
-Cut a piece of Cajun Craze card stock 4-1/8 X 7/8 and emboss this piece, I used the woodgrain embossing folder.
For the leaves:
I stamp a couple of images on Daffodil Delight card stock using Early Espresso ink color and then I sponged them with several ink colors as follows:
-Always Artichoke in center
-Crush Curry on the rest of the leaf
-Cajun Craze all around the edges
Cut the leaves using the coordinating Leaflets Framelits.
I scrunched these leaves to give them texture.
-Cut a couple of other leaves using Gold Glimmer paper.
I added a linen thread bow to gather all leaves and attach to center of card.
Accent the card by adding some gold sequins or other embellishments.
The "Thankful" sentiment is from the Acorny Thank you stamp set.

Bookmark Front
Bookmark Back
For the Bookmark you need the following:
-Cut a piece of Elegant Eggplant card stock 5 X 2-1/2 and punch the top corners using the Curvy Corner Trio Punch.
-Cut a piece of Very Vanilla card stock 5 X 2 and punch the top with the Ornate Tag Topper Punch.
I stamped several leaves on the very vanilla piece by sponging directly on the stamps with Always artichoke in center, then Crush curry and Cajuy Craze on the edges of stamp (see picture below).
For the Back of Bookmark I stamped several images and embossed them with Gold embossing powder.

I hope you liked this project, it is very easy to make and I really love the way it turned out. This will make great gifts for your book club friends or Church friends, and school teachers.
